We’re packing up for the night so we can run the vacuum and hide the beer cans before morning. Why, you ask? Our very own Teri’s post on synesthesia is being crossposted on MSNBC’s Body Odd blog first thing tomorrow morning! YAY TERI! *UPDATE* That piece is now going to be running on Tuesday the 16th instead of tomorrow.
While we’re making sure the place is presentable, feel free to get cozy in the comments and chat about whatever you like. We’ll be around until late tonight, so we can get new commenters approved in a hurry. Hope you all had a great hump day!
In site news, I posted a PSA in the forums about changing your display name. (It’s really easy!) I’m looking for plug-ins that will let the lovely readers post images in comments and forum posts, but so far the ones I’ve tried haven’t worked well with our set-up. I’ll keep looking!
Bee compiled all the heroines for Middlemarch Madness a few posts ago, I wanted to offer all of you the chance to defend one of your favorites in a real live front page post. We’ll be cutting the group from 96 to 64 between now and March 1, so be prepared to sell us on the women you want to win to keep them in the race.
The response to shifting the schedule down in the day was almost completely in the ‘yay’ column, so I’m thinking we may start that next week and see what happens. We can always switch back if it doesn’t work. Enough jibber jabber, to the commenting!
I put out a buffet table for you. Don’t get fingerprints all over your monitors trying to get a strawberry.

I snort-laughed (loudly) in cubicle…
I’m headed out for my nightly cocoa and Roseanne before bed, so if you’re a newbie, some of our editors get up super early and will be in here to approve comments then.
I’ll see everybody in the morning!
Hi! Is anyone still awake up in here?
Hiiiii! It’s been so long since I’ve been in an open thread, I’ve sort of forgotten what to do. I figured it would be like riding a bike, ha!
Awake! I took a nap and have ruined my chances of getting to bed at a decent time…
whoops! I’m in Colorado so I’m a little behind most people although I am up a little late too.
Two kids under two means I’ll be here on and off most of the night.
This open thread feels so festive! So many former Jezzies! Yay all of us!
Phew! I’ve been a lurker for years at Jez, but have been severely disappointed with the content as of late. This new change to the layout was the final straw, holy cow, it is AWFUL. I’m looking forward to some awesome content and what seems to be a friendly community! Yay!
I’m not sure I’ll ever be bookish or clever, but I enjoy the company of women who are! So I guess I’ll make myself comfortable here. Hi!
I just got off work and I’m tired and exhausted. And my feet are killing me. I wish I had something better to say, but I just want to say that it great to see all you lovely people!
Hello all! I aspire to be bookish and clever. Although, right now, I’m drunkish and trashy-tv binging.
But still, aspiring! Anyway, I meandered over her from stfujezzies and thought it’d be nice to leave the occasional drunkish comment and at least say hello to everyone.
Hi, friends (new and old)! It’s incredible to me that I’ve known some of you for more than three years now.
